BIOGRAPHICAL OR HISTORICAL NOTE:
Established around 1876 as a Catholic cemetery by Father Antonio Ubach, Calvary Cemetery in San Diego's Mission Hills community was used extensively from 1880 to 1919. After the last burial in 1960, it fell into disrepair and a city resolution converted the cemetery into Calvary Memorial Pioneer Park in 1970. Of the more than 600 gravestones and monuments that remained in the cemetery, 142 were preserved in a section of the park while the others were removed to the city's Mount Hope Cemetery.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE:
Photographed by Joan Crone before Calvary Cemetery became Calvary Memorial Pioneer Park, the collection consists chiefly of black-and-white photographs of gravestones and monuments in the cemetery that were considered historically significant. Presented with other records to the San Diego History Center by the Hillcrest-Mission Hills Improvement Association in 1970, the photographs show deterioration and damage to many of the markers. Names on the gravestones include early pioneers, Irish and Italian immigrants, children, priests, soldiers and sailors, and prominent figures in San Diego's early history such as the area's first ordained priest, Father Antonio Ubach, and Captain Cave Johnson Couts and his wife Ysidora Bandini. The collection also includes color slides of the cemetery taken on Memorial Day.
